Pick out a bouquet of fresh flowers that have fairly strong stems. I chose zinnias and sunflowers. The sunflowers are a must for this project because of their long stems and bright color. They can also last quite a bit without any water.
Choose your colors of yarn. You can pick as many colors as you’；d like.
Start by making a knot at the top of the flower with your yarn. If you do each piece of yarn one by one， you will want to cut shorter pieces so you can knot them at the end of each section before you get to the next color. The other option is to tie all the strings at the top and cut them to about double the length of the stem. Then， switch off yarn colors as you wrap around the flower stem.
Tie the yarn off at the end and leave some hanging， or snip it at the knot. To keep the flower living longer， leave a few inches of the stem uncovered so you can set it in water.

When I first saw these BERNINA Echo quilt clips, I literally was jumping up and down. You might ask why? Well, you may or may not have heard, I have spacial issues. It is one of the reason why I quilt so heavily. If it’s all quilted, then it is evenly quilted right? Right! But not all quilts should be quilted to death and some people (I don’t know why) don’t like the quilted-to-death look.
Summer’s here and with it are days near the beach and the pool. To keep my phone protected, I designed this DIY Phone Case that’s Splash Proof, and have a tutorial to make it to share with you today. If you like this project, you may also enjoy my “Sunnies” Sunglasses Case Sewing Pattern.
